I've been reading rec.photo.equipment.large-format since I got started with the Graphic. There have been reports of LF photographer gatherings in the midwest which sounded like fun. Is anybody interested in doing such a thing out here in the greater Washington DC area? It'd be nice to share the stares when I take the camera out.

Share the stares? Just what have you been wearing that causes stares?

Stares? You mean onlookers don't smile at you and tell you that you really know what you're doing?

No. Apparently I look like a dangerous lunatic or something , since the usual reaction I get is people standing off at a distance pointing and talking to each other rather than asking me what I'm doing. (Or maybe I just look so preoccupied that they don't want to bother me...)

I still think it would be fun to go out in a group.

I think the idea of a "gathering" is a fine idea, but one wonders (or at least I do) what a gathering of Graflex users would be called?

I know that a gathering of geese is a gaggle, a gathering of crows is a murder and a gathering of lions is a pride, but just what would a gathering of Graflex users be called?

Still, it would be rather a lot of fun to see a dozen or so persons strolling down the street carrying all manners of Graflex cameras, one wonders if a passerby would think to call the police.

Any thoughts or ideas for names of a gathering of Graflex users?

I get stared at when I take my Graphic out in public, too. Of course, I'm usually dressed like this when I do...

GRAFPAK


And the outing can be called a SHOOT-A-THON.

Should the Shoot-a-thon be rated GV...for Graphic Violence?
